Reviewed August 27, 2013

Had a lovely holiday at the can sanso, the apartment we had was on the ground floor with a large balcony and spacious rooms, kept very clean. We paid for the air conditioning which was worth it as it kept us cool at night. We ate in the restaurant quite alot the food was good and the service was quick except one night when we had to wait along time so we complained and got some free drinks the next day which was good. The pool was good but quite deep my 8 year old son had his armbands on most of the time as he didnt like that he couldnt touch the bottom of it. The staff were very friendly, we enjoyed the quiz night and the singers and the parrot show. We went to babylon beach for a drink, worth going to just for the view. We walked into the town some evenings the marina and beach look lovely, we had a meal at the panda chinese and katmandu indian well worth going to, we also ate at the english cafe which was ok and had english tv. We went on the land train around the countryside and to a museum it was very good especially the drivers jokes! The beaches nearby are lovely. I went for a fish spa near the beach one evening which was great. The only downside is its about 15 minutes walk to the beach and about 20 to the main beach and marine but overall a lovely resort.

My husband and I travelled in May 2013 with my 18mth old daughter and 4 and a half year old son. It was their first holiday abroad, and a perfect place for it too.

The apartments are very clean and spacious, and have what you'd need for a basic self catering holiday. I was actually surprised at how often the cleaners visited!

The Eroski supermarket is 2 minutes away, idea for water and fresh bread.

We did eat in the bar twice during our stay, it was simple and fine for what we wanted at the time. It was a little disappointing that there wasn't high chairs available in there though, and we had to hire one which came the next day. I think we spent most of that meal chasing our daughter away from the edge of the pool !

It is a 15 min walk into town, it's not far and you can keep young 'uns going by getting them to count the lizards along the way. There are some great little restaurants in the centre of Santa Eulalia and I liked the shops a lot; not your usual tourist drivel. Whilst there ARE a lot of the Ibiza emblazened tat shops, there are a lot of nice little independent shops with different offerings and I liked that a lot.

We hired a car for 3 days through Thompson, and would highly recommend this to anyone with an inclination to do this. The island is so small that you can get to see a lot by doing this, and we'd never have got to Benniras without the car (you MUST go visit there on a Sunday!)

We'd definitely recommend Can Sanso to other families, and would definitely consider returning ourselves.

These apartments are lovely. Very spacious and studiously kept clean. Towels are changed every other day and beds at least twice a week. The only issue we had was a faulty air con. Tony who runs the place popped a new battery in one of the sensors and problem solved, All within 10 mins of me telling him about it. the pool area as with the hole site is immaculate, no litter and areas are pressure washed every morning before anyone is up and about. A slight down note is that there is a sunbed mafia, while we stayed one family in particular had reserved beds on both sides of complex to get all day sun. This I'm afraid is really not on. having said that if you are up and about at 8am (ish) you will have no probs getting a bed.

The biggest problem was the walk to the town. It's a good 15 minute walk and when you have kids under ten they find it a bit of a drag aftyer being on the go all day in the pool/mini golf etc. The beach is also a 15min walk and is best found going along the coastal path. head to Babylon beach bar and turn left. its asafe walk and far more picturesque than going by road. This is known as Niu Blau beach and is hardly ever crowded, 4.50euro for a bed too.

The staff at the hotel are super helpful and super friendly. even the gardner and maids taking time to say morning to everyone. The two girls behind the bar (names escape me) work tirelessley as do Tony and Roger the night watchman. The food at the apartments is excellent too and very reasonably priced. This was a godsend on more than one occasion as my 9yr old was just too tired to walk in to town. The three course meal deal is a must if you have a hearty appetite and for 12.50euro it's a bargain!

As a family we would go back definately, just maybe leave it for a couple of years so I don't have to piggy back my youngest home most nights after eating out. The best resturant is definately The Gallery, it's a bit more pricey (100euro for two courses and two rounds of drinks) for a family of four but I can gurantee their Banoffee pie is the best I've ever had. If you want a bit more for less cash try the chinese on resturant road, family of four with two rounds of drinks cost us 45euro and we were stuffed.

IF you're offered a trip to the Las Dalias hippy market...don't bother. too commercial and very little bartering goes on. Get yourself on to the bus to Es Canar on a wednesday to the hippy market there, 100% better.

Room Tip: If you get the option of choosing a room opt for one over the bar area, they get sun on them ALL day...

These apartments are spacious, clean, perfect for a family. We paid £1600 for 2 weeks in aug 2013 for a family of 3 and we got great value for money. The grounds are excellently maintained, the bar staff friendly and maids brilliant. the hotel has the right recipe for success.

Room Tip: 211 is perfect

Travelled here August 2013 for first time, apartments were fine & very clean, small so kids easily found friends by the pool. Our only disappointment was the location which was a long walk into SE & with small kids & beach stuff was extremely hard work! Santa Eulalia itself was lovely with the marina & the lovely beach & promenade, lovely at night, but we didn't visit to often as we would of liked as we didn't like the walk back with the little one & didn't feel that safe walking along the main road, as couldn't get taxi as there was 5 of us. Visited Es Cana a couple of times & found it to be more suited to families, so if we go back to Ibiza we will stay there. Had a lovely trip on the ferry & used some of the water sport facilities. Eroski supermarket next door was so busy & you could queue for an hour so best time to go is when it opens at 9am!! Visited Nin Blau beach but found the water to be dirty with seaweed etc. Bus into Es Cana was extremely easy to use & stop just across the road. Entertainment at night at Can Sanso was a high standard, & better than we have see at previous Thomson apartments. Overall a good holiday but wouldn't return as location didn't suit us, but nice little apartment complex.

We stayed here for two weeks at the end of July with our three children. We loved the can sanso, the apartment was spacious and the terrace was large with a nice view of the pool. Quiet at night too with no noise heard from other apartments or the nearby road. Swimming pool, bar area, gardens all extremely good. The nearby beach is lovely with shade if you want it. The hippy market at Es Cana and Ibiza Town are great places to visit. We ate out every night at the many restaurants which are a 15 minute walk away (ignore the negative comments about the long walk to them). The restaurants by the marina are all good and we particularly liked Cafe Sidney. Don't bother going to nearby Babylon Beach as it's a rip off £6 for a fruit juice! We had a fantastic holiday and would stay there again if we went back to Ibiza.

We have just returned from a two week holiday in Ibiza staying at the Can Sanso apartments in Santa Eulalia.
We have been holidaying in Ibiza for 15 years or so and love the island. We booked two apartments, one for me, my wife and 9 year old daughter and one for my 15 year old daughter and her two best friends.
We had read some of the comments on Trip Advisor prior to going and having now stayed at Can Sanso find it amazing that it had received negative comments.
The apartments were very clean,(maids cleaned every two days) very spacious inside and a huge balcony over looking the pool ( they made sure that our daughter and friends were in the next room ) very clean kitchen and fridge, good iron and ironing board, very clean and functional bathroom.
We were on the top floor so two flights of stairs ( no lift but stairs keep you fit )
From a location point of view it was perfect for us, ten minutes to a fantastic beach ( Niu Blau Beach, out of apartments and turn left, beach is signalled with two flags ) and ten minutes turning right into Santa Eulalia town which is a fantastic resort with a huge marina, long promenade and lots of nice restaurants and shops.
There is a huge supermarket 1 min away again turning left.
The staff were faultless, extremely polite, very helpful and always available.
The evening entertainment seemed ok but we prefer to venture out at night and not stay around the bar etc.

This is a chilled place and not a structured type of accommodation so look else where if you require kids clubs and daytime entertainment etc.

All in all we were delighted with our choice and had a great holiday with Thompson

We will be going back.........
